Karachi- Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Patron-In-Chief of Pakistan Peoples Party has stressed for more efforts, including legislation and practical steps, to remove the perils of Child Labor from Pakistan. He urged the government to provide the children with strong social protection.

On occasion of World Day against Child Labor, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said children are future of our nation and every parent has the responsibility to save their children from falling into the trap of child labor. However, it is the responsibility of the state to protect the children and take strong and committed steps to ensure that every child was given adequate chance to education, health, leisure and basic freedoms.

International Labor Organization (ILO), having 185 countries as the member states including Pakistan, is observing World Day against Child Labor to “draw attention to the role of social protection in keeping children out of child labor and removing them from it.”
